like to make contact with old friends - Arthur Pratt, who lived in Over

|John Thompson||c. 1933||Login or Register to view email address.||I was at Chipping Norton School in the early 1930s when Mr Orme was Head
Master. I remember discipline being very strict then.
After leaving school I did electrical work in the area around Oxford, including a spell at Bliss Tweed Mill. During the war, I was in the RAF, stationed in Canada, close to where I was born. Les Sewel, another ex-Chipping Norton pupil was with me there for a time. I returned to Chadlington after finishing military service and in the late 1950s started my own business in Electrical Engineering Contracting. I was a local representative on the Chipping Norton RDC and then on WODC for many years.
In 1958 I married my wife Julie. We have four Children and seven Grand-children. Julie and I still live in Chadlington and would be interested to hear about any other ex-pupils of my generation. The e-mail address belongs to one of my Grand-children.
